I actually enjoyed school yesterday, at least lab and my day after lab....people can be ridiculous though. =P And people and blockbuster make me laugh...or maybe I make them laugh...I'm not quite sure about that. =P But yes my day was made... Also...I could never be Muslim...=P

I went to the Charlie Hall concert last night, it = amazingness. At least in my book. =P He sang my songs [My Brightness and Hookers and Robbers.]

I'm glad that I had gotten the CD before I went though. I knew the lyrics then--although I felt lik a dork when there was practically no one singing--but that's ok, I got over it. =P

I like Charlie Hall because...he gets it. He loves Jesus. =) Andddd yes.

Crack kids, track kids, hookers and robbers
The naked and hungry, mothers and fathers
Abuses, excuses, and guns in your hands.
And I even welcome the arrogant man.

I welcome you all to the biggests of feasts
A night of no shame to pause and to breathe
This is a night of love's renovation.
A feast I am sure that could change a whole nation.

Me, I am not such an excellent host
I am one who forgives but needs it the most

I found the liar, The killers of hearts
I ran away with a new way to start.

I journeyed a road where a bright man appeared
He looked into me, and my eyes filled with tears
My breath fast and short and my heart burning deep
He gave me new eyes and a new way to see

So come as you are, as you are, as you are
So come as you are, as you are, as you are

I still defiled his great love ways
I felt such a famine when I ran away
I missed the presence, the voice like a song
I was nasty and dirty, I knew I was wrong

But he ran to me like a dream, like a father
This love is not earthly this love must be other
He carried me home and threw me a party
A party so loud like the greatest love story

Oh my dear friends applaud now please
I've invited you here to announce you are free
He takes your chains, busting you out of prison

Just open your heart, let your heart come and listen.

Come as you are, as you are, as you are...
Come as you are, as you are, as you are...

Who could accept all your pounding and screaming
Your raging your freaking, cussing and beating
All while he holds you always forgiving
This is the story of love and of living.

Wipe off your tears and laugh just a little
Come break this bread celebrate the forgiver
Raise up a glass, a time to remember
Come break this bread celebrate forgiver.!
Hookers and Robbers//Charliehall.

I've waited a long time to post those lyrics.

I don't think we think like this. I really don't. I know most of the time I don't think like that...

What would it look like to really have Jesus's heart?

Anyways--so Lauren and I missed a picture with him at Passion--but we got one this time. =P

Please disregard my disheveled appearance and the fact that I'm taller than him. =P
Do note that I'm wearing my Passion shirt though. =P

Also just for kicks =P
